Dr Jibran Khaliq

Senior Lecturer

Department: Mechanical and Construction Engineering

Dr. Jibran Khaliq is a Senior Lecturer in Department of Mechanical and Construction Engineering at Northumbria University. Dr. Khaliq joined Northumbria University in September 2017 after successful postdoctoral experience gained at Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. From 2011 to 2013, Dr. Khaliq was involved in developing Ultra hard ceramics for body armours at one of the most successful spin out companies in London (Nanoforce technology ltd.).

Dr. Khaliq was awarded Doctor of Philosophy, (Ph.D.) in Advance energy materials from Queen Mary University of London in late 2014. He completed his undergraduate degree at University of Engineering and Technology Lahore, Pakistan in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering. His research interests lie in the area of Smart Materials, ranging from ceramics (synthesis and characterisation) to Polymers and Composites. He has collaborated actively with researchers in several countries focusing on developing state of the art material for sensing and actuation applications.

Dr. Khaliq has published several papers on synthesis of advance materials in reputed peer reviewed internataional journals and holds three patents. Dr. Khaliq has also given invited talks at several conferences. 

Till date, Dr. Khaliq has won several awards including:

Potdoctoral Fellowship worth € 375,000.

PhD studentship worth £100,000.

Fully Funded PhD Studentship (As an Academic) £100,000
